Called to be a light to the nations, let us pray for God’s justice, peace, and healing.
Pour out your spirit of unity, triune God. Renew our lives in the promises of baptism. Hold us together as a congregation of faith in the oneness of the body of Christ. Empower us to be one as you are one. Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.
Pour out your spirit of wisdom, holy God. Guide our government officials and military leaders as they wrestle with complex situations. Grant them courage and compassion to work for peace in every nation. We pray for the safety of our military, our police and our emergency responders who risk their lives to protect us. Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.
